The NBPA got this one right.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Sacramento Kings Sergio Estrada-USA TODAY Sports

The National Basketball Players Association held their annual NBA representative summer meeting Friday, which is only newsworthy in Sacramento because veteran Kings guard Garrett Temple was elected to a three-year term as one of the NBPA’s Vice President’s.

Temple joins the NBPA staff of Chris Paul (President), LeBron James (First Vice President), James Jones (Secretary-Treasurer), Carmelo Anthony, Stephen Curry, Pau Gasol, Andre Iguodala and Anthony Tolliver (Vice Presidents).

Garrett Temple talked about his new role here:

I don’t have to convince anyone in Sacramento that Temple is a worthy VP for the NBPA. I feel pretty confident in saying that he’s one of the better off-court Kings in Sacramento history, and you can tell by listening to his interview above that he has a passion for the position. They couldn’t have elected a better guy.

Congratulations, Garrett!
